A 24-year-old man who allegedly choked and seriously injured a baby girl in Sydney's west has been charged with child abuse-related offences.
The eight-month-old was treated for serious head and neck injuries at Westmead's Children's Hospital in August, prompting an investigation by the child abuse and sex crimes squad.
The man was subsequently arrested at a Whalan house on Friday after police say he caused the infant's injuries while caring for her.
He has been charged with intentionally causing grievous bodily harm and choking a person without their consent.
Bail was refused and he is due to appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.
